I will be the first one to admit that Jerry was not a major league manager, however we all have something to thank him and his brother for, and that is Josh Hamilton. Jerry worked with Josh on and individual basis the months of January and Feb., to get him as ready as they could for spring training. Jerry's brother is his "keeper" in Cincinnati and on the road. Now if Josh remains clean we have a "big time" center fielder for several years to come. Jerry might not have done a lot right in the dug out but he leaves a legacy of Josh Hamilton.
Thank-you Jerry for working hard in the winter with a fellow North Carolina boy, to help him overcome his demons and get him ready to give baseball another chance in his life. This will be what I remember years from now about Jerry Narron.
